Enjoyed by both men and women in over 78 countries around the world, Powerlifting is without doubt the ultimate strength sport.
It is distinct from Weightlifting - a technical event made up of two lifts, the Snatch and the Clean-and-Jerk, where the weight is lifted above the head.
Powerlifting is a test of pure, unadulterated, brute strength, and comprises three lifts : The Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift.
As in most sports, regional, national and international championships provide the setting for athletes to compete against each other, with all the associated glory and recognition that one might expect, but Powerlifting is essentially an individualistic sport where self-improvement is the greatest motivating factor.
In Powerlifting competition, athletes are categorized by sex, age and bodyweight. Each competitor is allowed three attempts at each lift, the best lift in each discipline being added to their total. The lifter with the highest total is the winner. In cases where two or more lifters achieve the same total, the person with the lightest bodyweight wins.
